September Challenge on AlteredArtEurope

The challenge was to create a paper doll for a partner, in my case Shakti, to show a part/side of ourselves that people might not know. I found it quite hard to think in specifics and ended up with with this lovely – my Fire Self – I meant it to show the firey side of my nature, my temper – hence the head being held apart from the body – losing my head literally lol – but I think she also shows my protective nature and, in essence, where my energy comes from – hence the spiral at the base chakra. It was a little like the soul collage process – I made and discarded several incarnations until I felt satisfied and this one felt just right 🙂


About Jill An artist inspired by nature in all her glorious guises and the ‘inner’ worlds I have inhabited in the past, present and future; also those of other wanderers I meet along the way.
